MS Brissie to the Bay Bike Ride
On Sunday 12th June, my brother-in-law Darrin Kefford (Kingaroy Joinery) and myself, Jason Ford (Kingaroy TAFE), are riding 100km in the MS Brissie To The Bay Bike Ride, to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The ride will take us from Musgrave Park to Wellington Point and Cleveland.
We participated for the first time last year, but only rode in the shorter 50km as we had never ridden such a long distance. So this year we decided to go all out, push our limits and ride the whole 100km.
We also decided to use the ride as an opportunity to help fight MS, by fundraising. We have known quite a few people both professionally and personally who suffer from MS, including family members.
MS is one of the most common diseases of the central nervous system. It may affect the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve and impacts more young people in Australia than any other chronic neurological disease. The term multiple sclerosis means ‘many scars’ and depending on where those scars (lesions) develop, they result in various symptoms.
Between both our fundraising pages we have already raised over $1000 for MS.
If anyone is interested in supporting either of us, donations can be made to our individual online fundraising pages:
